Operation: Darkness trailer: of Nazi werewolves and dragons

Tired of FPS or RTS games set in World War II? Japan has the wackiest ideas as usual, coming up with Operation: Darkness for the Xbox 360. Developer and publisher Success Corp., known for a slew of Japanese titles (only a few like Metal Saga and Zoo Keeper reached the west), took a new approach to WWII by adding werewolves, zombies, vampires, dragons, and other creatures to the mix.

If that doesn’t sound good enough, it’s also amusing how plenty of characters in Operation: Darkness look anime-esque while some (especially Hitler and his goons) are very realistic. Did we mention that the characters have special powers too? Some can summon a giant hand to crush enemies on the battlefield, while others transform into monsters you’d never see in other WWII-based games.

Not much is known about Operation: Darkness, but we’re certain that it’ll be a fun turn-based strategy game. Yeah, you read that right. In the spirit of Disgaea, Final Fantasy Tactics, and everything along those lines, is this entry that should pique the interest of many. For those who can’t imagine how the Japanese can twist WWII, here’s a trailer with some snippets of gameplay footage.
